FAIRFIELD — The 286-unit Green Valley Apartments near Solano Community College won unanimous approval Wednesday by city planning commissioners who also OK’d the proposed 210-unit Rockville Terrace assisted living facility on Mangels Boulevard near NorthBay Healthcare’s Green Valley campus.

Planning Commissioner Camille Jones called both projects “just fantastic.”

The gated apartments on 13 acres at 3900 Business Center Drive will rent for between $1,400 and $2,000 a month, said Tom Allen, vice president with Stockton-based A.G. Spanos Companies.

A clubhouse, pool and spa are part of the project.

He told commissioners that A.G. Spanos is looking forward to developing another apartment in Fairfield.

“It’s been a few years,” Allen said. “We’ve always had good luck here.”

Commission Chairman Scott Tonnesen said, “Your positive energy is encouraging.”

Rockville Terrace by Vacaville-based Blue Mountain Inc. will include libraries, a salon, spa, theater and gym.

“It’s absolutely going to be gorgeous,” owner Jason Reyes said.

The city of Fairfield owns the property between Suisun Valley and Green Valley roads in the Green Valley Corporate Park.

Independent living at the five-acre site will start at $1,900 a month, with assisted living costing $2,900 to $3,900 a month and memory care ranging between $4,400 to $4,500, Reyes said.

Blue Mountain opened Cornerstone Assisted Living in Vacaville  in January and the site is 75 percent occupied, he said.

“There is an astronomical demand” for senior care, Reyes said.

“We have a very good reputation in Solano County,” he said. “We have a lot of word of mouth.”

Commissioner Randy Blankenchip said, “I’m not a senior, but I’m ready to move in.”

    City services are stretched pretty thin already, do we need more people in FF?

    These will be expensive,high end, gated communities that will obviously be well maintained. As such, they will probably be safer than most rental communities and therefore less of a draw on public resources. The tenants will be contributing to the local tax base by shopping in the area and using other services. Welcome, Green Vallejo Apartments and Rockville Terrace Senior Living residents!

    No boom, we should just put up a toll booth on both ends of Highway 80 and just let residents in or out.

    Fabulous. Another apartment complex to ruin property values, increase crime, and drain more of the city's social services. "We've always had good luck here." Translated this means they've succeeded in containing the blight to Solano County and out of the "progressive areas" like Marin County. This nonsense would never fly there. Can we make these properties both assisted living facilities, or low income Veteran's housing? Something other than Section 8 dwellings which will be infested soon with the dregs of society.

    I'm pretty sure you're going to be proven wrong about these properties and they will be assets to the area and the City as a whole.

    To: Just sayin, AKA How to ruin they valley: This property needs to be developed so that it provides a return on the City's investment. It's not the right location for open space in perpetuity and the holding costs need to be mitigated through development.

    The City owns this property or the now defunct RDA owns the property?
